    Is the lever meant to fit entirely in this indentation on my cycleops trainer? Feels like it would need considerable force.

    Personally really glad to see my grass is suffering, trying to get much more biodiversity into it and it's hard to establish things like daisy, clover, etc when the lawn is thriving.

    Hoping to mow it back extremely short as soon as the bulb leaves have died back.

    Obviously all out of stock, but it looks like there was previously a fluid turbo trainer that cost about 75 pounds, sold under various brands (lifeline, FWE, etc)

    I guess what I want to know, was this a normal price? Almost everything else I've ever seen is/was about £200+. I have never paid attention to turbos, let alone wanted one but obviously the current situation... has changed my opinion and I want to know vaguely what kind of price a basic dumb trainer was before "the incident".

    I would 100% keep that print.

    are you still in cambridge? I have some starter if you can think of an acceptable way to get some off me (I could glove up, wrap it in clingfilm and drop it out of my front window? LMK) Otherwise Daily Bread had some last time I checked (not recently)

    Understand if you would rather stay in though.

    Just had my mortgage application pulled because apparently they're only moving forward with applications for key workers? Minor I know, and no one was going to move house shortly but it's totally blindsided me.

    It feels natural to crave the army comes in but before we do that we should be shutting down nonessential (non life saving) works and businesses too. People having to continue going to work is carnage. UBI now.

    Hey I do (did) juggernaut as well, rep up.

    I think that the easiest thing to do is switch to bodyweight stuff, but sadly this is often much harder to systematise, because the increase in difficulty often comes from small changes in position, ie, moving your feet closer to your hands for a pike push up, or moving your hands closer in for a push up (sometimes you change the entire movement that you do, going from say, banded pull up to regular pull up, but this is less frequent). I have in the past made marker lines on my yoga mat or similar.

    In the end though, without a barbell you are limited in what you can do, particularly lower body wise. It can become annoying. I spent a long time working out at home out of convenience, and eventually it got kind of annoying because the progression was harder to track. Especially for "more experienced" (old) lifters.

    How much would you pay for the above? Already a bid on it.

    There's also a neutrino 200 on for 155 which seems ok?
